Health Tip: Choosing Canned Seafood

Avoid products packed in oil
(HealthDay News) -- For cost and convenience, canned seafood can be a wise choice to help you eat more fish.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions for buying canned seafood:
Read the label to see how the fish is packed. Avoid products packed in oil and choose those packed in water, which contain less fat. For a more mild, drier flavor, opt for fish packed in spring water or vacuum-sealed packs. Read the label to see if the product contains edible bones, which can provide a significant amount of calcium.
